Police were called after a dog suffered horrific abuse at the hands of its owner.

Witnesses told police in Florida, that the woman claimed that her dog can fly.

She then threw the dog off a bridge and it fell 30 feet.

She proved that her dog was unable to fly, according to the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office.

Officers took the woman to a hospital for a mental health evaluation. If she is competent to stand trial, the woman could face a charge of animal cruelty, the sheriff’s office said.

Capt. David Walesky of Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control said that the 8-year-old dog, a black and white Jack Russell terrier mix, dislocated a leg when it fell.

The 30-pound dog was in a lot of pain and had a significant amount of swelling. Walesky said that the dog was in serious but stable condition.

The dog will stay in the care of Animal Care and Control for the foreseeable future, Walesky said.
